Chiefs’ Coach Andy Reid Talks About Being 3 – 0

The Kansas City Chiefs are back in the “Fountain City” and head coach Andy Reid is back in his office at One Arrowhead Drive. He took a few minutes to call into Sports Radio 810 WHB and talk to Kevin Kietzman on “Between the Lines.” I jotted down some notable quotes for you Addicts to chew on as we finish up this “Victory Friday.”

Kietizman began the interview asking Coach Reid how he thought the game went last night. Andy’s reply was pretty short and to the point in regards to his offense.

“We can tighten some things up.”

When asked about the team as a whole, Reid only had good things to say.

“They come to work every day and want to get better.”

Kietzman asked the coach about the team he inherited. He only had great things to say about the previous regime.

“There were pretty good coaches and a great general manager here before. You try to take the players you have and exploit all their talent.”

Kietzman then moved to the Chiefs defense and how dominant they’ve been this season. This is what Reid had to say:

“Bob Sutton and his staff have done a heck of a job. They just play hard and aggressive.”

Earlier during his show, Kietzman was commenting on how impressed he was with Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and the fact that he was running a designed down field block for WR Donnie Avery. He passed this onto Coach Reid.

“First of all, Dwayne Bowe is a stud. The guy is tougher than shoe leather. He’s a team leader and I love his personality. He’s flamboyant, but when it’s time to work, he gets it done. When we needed him last night he had a huge catch on third down.”

Kietzman then turned the conversation to the Chiefs offensive line.

“The offensive line is young. When they settle down and get in the flow of the game, they get better. They just need to get some snaps under them before they get in rhythm.”

When asked about going 3 – 0 and expectations for the rest of the season, Coach Reid was humble, confident.

“We’re in this thing to win. I’m glad we had the opportunity to win last night. I’m proud of our guys.”

The conversation then turned back to the defense and Kietzman asked for Reid’s thoughts on linebacker Justin Houston and defensive tackle Dontari Poe.

“Justin Houston, my God, what can I say? And Dontari Poe. I’ve never been around a guy that big and athletic. Every day in practice he brings it. Every play.”

Before ending the interview, Coach Reid gave his final thoughts.

“This team loves to play the game. Every team writes its own story. The fans need to be fans and enjoy it and make life miserable for teams who come to Arrowhead.”

That sounds like great advice from a great coach. We look forward to many more of these “victory days” from this coaching staff and team. What do you think, Addicts? Is Reid the answer the Chiefs have been looking for? Sound off below.

    Yes I think so… He is the first real head coach we have had since Marty!

    • berttheclock

      and, John Dorsey is the first real GM since…………………………..

      • Jason Seibel

        King Carl had his time. His problem was that he just stayed in power too long. He had too much control so when the walls came tumbling down, he had no one to blame but himself.
        Dorsey is a damn good GM who will hopefully bring a lot of talent, honor and victories back to this franchise. I want this team to hoist at least the damn Lamar Hunt trophy so damn bad I can taste it.

          Amen to that Jason. Amen to that!

    Ever since Bill Walsh introduced the West Coast Offense, I’ve wanted it to come to KC. I loved Martyball, but I really wanted someone who’d run the West Coast Offense. Now it seems we have a Defense every bit as good as when Marty was here, we have once again got that Arrowhead mojo going, Colquitt is unbelievable, Succop is awesome, and now we have that West Coast Offense. Once the O line starts blocking we’ll be a totally elite team.

      Sadly, when King Carl brought Montana to KC, he expected the West Coast without understanding the need for a pass catching TE in that system. So, Joe M had to deal with the great blocking, but, stone hands of Jonathan Hayes. By the time King realized his mistake and selected Tony G, it was too late. Of course, there was also Marty. One of the great quips made by Lenny Dawson was just after Tony G caught a pass and Dawson said Marty was shocked to learn the NFL allowed TEs to catch passes.

        Now that is funny stuff!

    Andy Reid has been born again as a HC. You can see it in his face that the man is in a happy place. Without the headaches of all the other duties he can focus totally on coaching and he is enjoying it. I have never in my 65 years seen a HC and a team become so close so quickly. It is so obvious how much his players love the man. Nothing but good can come from that.

    It sure is a good feeling to have the Chiefs 3-0! Fans have been waiting a long time for this to happen and I think the offense will eventually settle down and start scoring more. Once the offense get’s on the same page and starts to gel, which I think will be soon, this team will be a tough team to play at home or on the road!! So far, we have beaten two respectable teams and people are beginning to pay attention to the Chiefs in a positive way which hasn’t happened in a long time.
